Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 4/23/12

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter! Have any ideas or comments about the challenges? Post them down below!

The Challenges:
 Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3500cR
As you are being tasked with winning seven games today in multiplayer Matchmaking, you should really have no issue completing forty measly kills in that time. You should be hitting at least ten kills per game, if not almost fifteen, and you will likely be playing more than seven games for the "Home Field Advantage" challenge. The end point is this, just ignore this challenge as it will be taken care of automatically. Do not worry about it, stop reading, move on.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 4000cR
For the Weekly Challenge, "Like a Record, Baby" I am encouraging you to play about three to four games today in the Firefight Arcade playlist. Now, in a standard game of Firefight Arcade, you will likely hit around a hundred kills as you have a lot of people to compete with than you do in Score Attack (What percent greater is three than zero? Infinity?) so your total kills might go down some. Either way, play four games and you should be right at four-hundred kills. If a little short, play another game or go into Score Attack, which can also be useful for the next challenge.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR

Killing enemy vehicles is often an arduous task in Firefight Matchmaking as they used to be hard to find. Some levels, like Installation 04 and Holdout, have Banshee spawns that you can practically farm for kills, though this will be a little difficult in Firefight Arcade because three other people will be going for those kills too. Large maps like Beachhead will typically have vehicles drop in at the start and end of every round which means you will have a better chance of getting vehicle kills since you know when they will be coming. Therefore, you should get this done will doing "Shootin' and Lootin'," but if need be, play an extra game of Score Attack on Installation 04 or Holdout (Not 2X Score Attack) to finish off the kills you need.

Home Field Advantage - Win 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2050cR
I have never been a fan of any challenge asking you to win a large number of games in a day because there is very little you control in matchmaking. Seven wins is not too large of a number, but it is sure getting close. Try to play with friends that are skilled in this game and in playlists that you typically do well in. This will hopefully insure that you score wins enough that you have time for all the Firefight challenges today. As well, also stick to playlists that you know and do well in as to help expedite matters.

The Weekly Challenge:
Like a Record, Baby - Complete 75 Rounds in Firefight Matchmaking. - 28000cR
This challenge is not too difficult depending on the gametype you play it in, just time consuming. Basically, in a typical game of Score Attack, you will complete one round if you complete the entire game. In Firefight Arcade, you will complete three rounds. Since the time difference is no too great, you will want to stick to Firefight Arcade clearly. Now, seventy five rounds needed and getting three per game means that you will need to complete twenty-five games of Firefight Arcade this weekend, or seventy-five games of Score Attack. Personally, I will take the Firefight Arcade. Now, this means you will need to hit about three to four games a day to get to seventy-five rounds. Try to play with friends and always with a full team of four. Small maps like Corvette and Courtyard will, of course, go faster than larger maps like Beachhead or Installation 04. Again, not difficult, just time consuming.

  1. RE: Flat Tire, "if need be, play an extra game of Score Attack on Installation 04 or Holdout (Not 2X Score Attack) to finish off the kills you need."

    Do vehicle kills not count toward Flat Tire in 2X Score Attack? And if not, why?

    I noticed several Banshee kills were not counted while I played Score Attack on Installation 04 the last two times Flat Tire was a daily challenge, but I was pretty sure it did work once while I was using Score Attack.

    If Banshee kills only work in Score Attack, and not 2X, this would make sense. Any idea why the difference though?
